Coachella Valley Housing Coalition Summer Tennis Camp

Aug. 8, 2013 / By

For the past 13 years, the Coachella Valley Housing Coalition has provided the young residents of its low-income housing communities the opportunity to attend tennis camp at the prestigious Indian Wells Tennis Gardens.

In this video, Coachella Unincorporated shares a glimpse of what these young tennis enthusiasts have done twice a week for the past four weeks. Even the triple digit heat does not dampen their spirits on the court.

The Coachella Valley Housing Coalition helps low-income families improve their living conditions through advocacy, research, construction, and operation of housing and community development projects. CVHC has constructed nearly 4,000 homes and apartments for low-income households in Riverside County and Imperial County.
